Molecular identification of livestock breeds: a tool for modern conservation biology
Yaro, Mohammed; Munyard, Kylie A.; Stear, Michael J.; Groth, David M.;
Global livestock genetic diversity includes all of the species, breeds and strains of domestic animals, and their variations. Although a recent census indicated that there were 40 species and over 8000 breeds of domestic animals; for the purpose of conservation biology ... View more
